The Make Music Topanga Festival Joins The Annual Celebration With Free Concerts On June 21st
The first annual Make Music Topanga, a wild and wonderful mix of over 25 (and growing!) free musical performances, will make its debut on Monday, June 21st. Aptly described as a “DIY” festival, the event is put on by the community FOR the community—spearheaded by local organizers, to foster the opportunity for Topanga Canyon to plug into the magic of Make Music Day. Topanga will be joining an international music celebration that takes place on the summer solstice each year and brings people of all ages and skill levels together to make music.
This year, 90 U.S. cities will host thousands of Make Music performances across the country as part of the world’s largest annual music event.
Any musician, amateur or professional, young or old, is invited to take part by signing up here.
Registration closes on June 20th to accommodate those who like to slide in at the last minute. Likewise, businesses, buildings, schools, neighborhood front porches and garden courtyards can visit the website to offer their outdoor spaces as concert locations.
Highlighted locations for Make Music Topanga include Flower Power (Francesca Brown, Terin Ector, Preston Smith, Phil Crosby Jr, Fred Tackett & Domenic ), Pebbles Clothing (Petty Chavez, Claire and Theo) and Topanga Creek Outpost (Sam Lapides and the Rotten Liars, The Blue Dolphins), with more local businesses and performers signing up daily.
Presenting sponsors are Topanga Enrichment Programs (the fund-raising board for Topanga Elementary) and Truck Stop Mixtape (the locally-run, quarantine-fueled livestream show).
A growing schedule of events is live at www.makemusicday.org/topanga with an interactive map showing who, where and when music will be available on June 21st.
